Tea Time with Little People

Tea just begs to be shared.

Sometimes I love this, like when I have a good friend visiting.  Other times, by myself with my kids, I admit that I feel that it's a bit of a drag.

Coffee drinkers don't have this conundrum.  They make coffee and don't have to share it with any little munchkins.  "It'll stunt your growth." is all it takes to quell that possibility.

Sometimes I'm jealous of coffee drinkers.

But then...  I'm raising up a generation of people who enjoy the finer things in life.  Tea, brewed just right, with fresh cream... nothing compares.  Whether in a tea mug or a sippy cup, it's just the right thing.  

So I rebrew my tea leaves for them.  No caffeine for them that way, right?  Organic orange pekoe with a few cacao nibs sprinkled in is our favorite lately.  But maybe tomorrow we'll mix in some herbal chai.

And we have tea together, and it helps everything, especially if we're fussy.


  1. I like that "if WE'RE fussy". Ha! I have a Yerba Mate habit right now. With cream. SOOOO good!

    1. Mate with cream... I'll have to try that. I've only had it the traditional way-- in a gourd with a pile of sugar, sipped through a bombilla. Waaaaay too sweet for my taste.
